Description
 

Fine Dead Girls (Fine Mertve Djevojke)
A film by Dalibor Matanic

Croatia, 2002 (77 minutes)

Synopsis
A report of a kidnapped child triggers an investigation that uncovers nightmarish conditions in a seedy apartment building in Zagreb: none of the residents are as they seem and when they learn the truth about each other, the pervasive climate of mistrust in the building explodes into violence. The hostility and misery of the characters' lives project vivid echoes of Croatia's recent past, as the country slowly emerges from years of ethnic violence during the Balkans war.

About the Director
Dalibor Matanic was born in Zagreb in 1975 and studied filmmaking at the Zagreb Academy of Dramatic Arts. He has made videos, commercials and documentaries before completing his first film, The Cashier Wants to Go to the Seaside (2000). Fine Dead Girls is his second feature film.
